    Agnia, we know all of that. Have you filled out a form yet to add your name to the housing list?
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    My guess would be no if the previous post is anything to go by

    It really would be worth filling out the form Agnia and asking for a needs assessment as well. There’s nothing lost by registering for social housing. No one is disagreeing that London has long waits but you lose nothing by getting on the list and potentially gain a new home. Going on the list won’t make anything worse. When you think about how long you’ve been experiencing problems and then think about how long someone like Poppy waited for her housing, if you’d registered already you may well had already been housed like Poppy was. I know London is tough but with your medical needs you may be pleasantly surprised and be housed quicker than you think.

    How do you know you won’t be when you haven’t even taken the time to fill out the forms to be added to the list. 

    We know about the bed bugs but I don’t t understand what this has to do with you filling out the forms. Why have you posted the same links again that you posted this morning? 

    In all honesty, the amount of time that you’ve been a member here and been given the same advice over and over again you could have been on that waiting list now, with at least some chance. At the moment you have zero chance! 

    It’s becoming very frustrating that we continue to advise but you ignore all the advice you’re given.

    Agnia, that's not how the system works though - register first in London if you want to leave London!

    I suppose if Agnia only wants to talk about the housing crisis that's also fine..

    Indeed but that's not going to help her get her name added to the list.

    Hi WhatThe im sorry i feel like im talking nonsense , i wanted to show the difference between the social accommodation out of london and in london and about housing crisis 
    English is my second language it’s really hard for me to express myself and to write correctly, 
    Hi poppy im sorry that is frustrating 
    i have no intention of ignoring
    it’s very hard for me to cope with anxiety and it was too much for me what was happening in my life at the same time
     im scared to live in london and my life changed dramatically

    Hey again - anagram of Agnia  :) - please 

    Apply to the Housing Register in your borough
    THEN Poppy can help you get a Needs Assessment for priority housing

    Take one step at a time for better accommodation. THEN you can leave London.  
    We are all on your side. Everything is harder when English isn't your first language but never mind anyone else at the moment! This is about you.

    Hope is important  <3

    It isn't nonsense and we can talk about that another time. 

    Housing is a huge problem in this country but not everybody comes to Scope for advice and support do you see?  ;)
